Couple that with the table-top antimatter gun and we have a awesome weapon!.............

He believes that with further refinement they could even drive an X-ray free electron laser

If this can significantly miniaturize a free electron laser, this has massive military applications.

A free electron laser is "tunable" and thus can be set to the best wavelength to pass through humid air, dust, etc. based on conditions. It is the ideal laser type for the navy, problem is you need a 100 foot linear accelerator in the ship with current technology.

But can it be converted to an overthruster?

I’m afraid the Viking Kitties will be wanting one of these.

Cool! A 1 GeV tabletop electron accelerator....oh, btw (buried deep down in the article)...you need a petawatt (that’s 1,000,000 GIGAWATT!!!) laser to make it work.

Tell you what. I’ll build you a 100 GeV electron accelerator the size of a grain of salt. Inside a salt shaker.

Oh, all you need to do is drop a megaton nuke on it. Simple!

sooo, is this small particle accelerator the same kind
of thang they were to build in Texas in the 80s that
was to cover several sq. miles??
